| “ I had never had Nicaraguan food before, and went in to Nicaragua Restaurant without a guide. This brought a great deal of amusement to the staff and fellow customers, as I dunked my one thing into the opaque, starchy soupy stuff, which was actually soup that was supposed to be drank using both hands to cup the little gourd thingy. I had no idea, and there was no way they were going to tell me, as there was no telling what I might try to do next, and it could only get better. Fortunately, it was all excellent, and no matter how I mishandled and abused it, it was delicious. This is a neighborhood joint, serving the everyday food you might eat if you're hanging with the locals in Nicaragua. It's really good stuff, but not high-end cuisine, if that matters to you.
